What are your general comments?

"I got to the school just ontime at 8am in the health sciences building. We sat around for about an hour and the interviews started on time at 9am. I had my first around 9:20am and my second interview at approximately 11am. The Dean came in to greet us a few minutes before lunch and he was amazingly down to earth. I felt really at home. Lunch (which was fantastic) is served at noon or a few minutes after depending on interview session. Finally, we are given a tour of the school afterwards, which takes about 45mins because it is pretty small but nice. It was a pleasant experience and relatively stress-free. I will love there" Report Response
